Without a doubt Hashim Amla has secured his Test place, its only a matter of time before he is a permanent fixture in the ODI side.
He seems to be one of the most calm and composed batsman today and very modest.
Which South African batsman (past/current) does he most remind you off?
Which International batsman does he compare best with and where do you think his future is heading.
Thread merged with recent discussion on Hashim.

wow, when i made this thread some two weeks he was averaging 40, now he is near 47. nice, he is indeed the new wall
3 innings' don't prove very much, he's experienced such astronomical average jumps before now as well.
^ well clearly he was the best batsmen of the series, his defense is just amazing, now i agree he has to continue like this, he has been great over the last 2 years
Cant believe that the Indians didnt watch or ignored (maybe just werent good enough) what everyone else sees
Early on, he plays across everything and a full, straight ball is generally good enough
I expect him to average late 30s/early 40s over his career and that will do justice to what is a pretty poor technique for a top order player
I am a convert. he is really such a fantastic player and a fantastic man.
I met him when he last toured with South Africa to Calcutta. He is genuinely nice. That much I can say. Happy to see him do well.
If you were picking a World XI on form Amla would be your number 3 atm. Liked what I saw of him last time he came to Australia, could absolutely plunder runs next time he comes here.
